Senator PRIMMER (VICTORIA) - I ask the Minister for Health: Is it a fact that a dependent student above 16 years of age in receipt of a Commonwealth Teachers Training Scholarship of approximately $16 a week is not covered by his parents' health insurance at the family rate, nor is he covered by the subsidised health insurance scheme? Does this mean that such a person must fully cover himself out of his Commonwealth Scholarship allowance? If so, does the Minister propose any action to overcome this situation?

Senator Sir KENNETH ANDERSON I would need to get the facts. I think they would come through my Department. I will certainly get the facts and make them available.
